The philosophy of Axé Capoeira is to respect all the mestres, preserve the roots and traditions of Capoeira, and train Capoeira in all its aspects: as a fight, art, and culture.
We endeavor to teach and educate so that capoeira will grow in a positive healthy way. We attempt to pass on to the students physical and mental methods of training so that they learn to create situations and maintain a dialogue within the game.
By playing both with friends and adversaries, students learn to deal with any situation in or out of the roda. In North America, we not only teach movements, but the Brazilian language and customs as well, so that the students may become true capoeiristas.
Axé Capoeira works relentlessly to ensure that Capoeira has a strong future and can be placed among the most widely practiced and respected martial art forms in the world. Through historical research, travel and event participation, we hope to increase our knowledge in the art and contribute to the evolution and growth of Capoeira.
In addition, we strive to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for our members of all ages. At Axé Capoeira, we take pride in providing a positive atmosphere where youth and members of the community have a place to build self-confidence, tactical skills and improve their lifestyle.
